I am IN LOVE with this stuff! The Kérastase V.I.P. Volume in Powder Backcomb Effect Finishing Spray ($38 CAD) has totally revolutionized my hair routine and convinced me to change my mind about hacking my hair off just in the nick of time.
I can’t get over how incredible this product is. The technology is described as the combination of the action of fixative polymers and a texturizing trace element for lasting hold and texturization via particles. I would describe it as an aerosolized mix of dry shampoo, texture powder, and hairspray all in one. Once my hair is dry I spray it at my roots and then massage my roots with my fingers to give AMAZING volume and lift at the root. This volume lasts for days. I was not exaggerating with the title of this post. The effect lasts for hours and hours and to give the volume a little bit of a reboot I just have to massage my roots again with my fingers periodically through the day. The effect continues even on into the second and third day (although even with my dry curly hair I usually want to wash again by then). I can just wake up in the morning, apply a little shine oil or creme to tame frizz, massage my roots for killer volume and I’m good to go. I had just gotten to the point of wanting to hack off my flat limp curls when the Kérastase Volume in Powder gave me the voluminous hair I wanted and made me fall in love with my longer curls again. Thank you V.I.P.!
